The Science of Hypnotherapy
Hypnosis isn’t weird, or magical. It’s an actual, proper thing, backed up by scientific research. Hypnosis is an altered state of consciousness very similar to daydreaming. In this altered state of consciousness your mind becomes very susceptible to positive suggestion, especially when those suggestions are tied to a goal you already know you want to achieve. Hypnotherapy then, is therapy conducted in a state of hypnosis. It is a highly effective form of psychotherapy with a very interesting history. This talk delves a little deeper into that history, highlights how hypnotherapy works and what wonderful things it can help you achieve. No one will take control of your mind during this talk.
